The Rotary Club of Fonthill and the Niagara Rotaract Club are very excited to initiate a food and fundraising drive in support of Food4Kids Niagara. FFood4Kids Niagara provides packages of healthy food for children up to 14 years with limited or no access to food each weekend. Currently they are meeting the needs of 450 children in 27 schools throughout the Niagara Region, with many more schools on the waiting list.
The food drive will commence on Monday December 27th and will run until Saturday January 15th. Food donations can be made via Mike Taylor by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, the Rotary Club of Fonthill will be sponsoring a Family Skate on Jan 7, 2022 at the Meridian Community Centre in Pelham and will gladly accept food goods at that time. The most urgent need is for Tuna, Soup and Chili.
While the monetary drive will also commence on December 27th, it will have a longer duration and is tentatively intended to conclude on March 31st.
The Niagara Rotaract Club, a group of young professionals is leading the work for the monetary donations. They are looking to use some of the money donated to apply for a Rotary District Grant. In this way, money raised will be matched with up to $2,000 USD ($2500 CDN). Several other local Rotary Clubs are also participating in this leading to a potential for a total of $20,000 to be directed to Food4Kids Niagara.
